- Counsel of the Wicked by Elizabeth A. Schechter
Matthias has spent his whole life on the edge of a very small world. The bastard child of a fallen woman, he's known nothing but judgment and hatred from the harsh, religious people of his enclave—except for Balthazar. The son and heir of the High Elder, Balthazar shows Matthias kindness, love... and desire. But when the High Elder discovers what his son has been doing, Matthias is arrested and sent to an isolated prison known as the School. There, and in the wastelands beyond, Matthias learns the secrets behind the hypocrisies of the Council of Elders, and his true heritage, true power, and true love. (M/M, M/F)
- Fools Rush In by Elizabeth A. Schechter
Davi is the world’s greatest thief. Just ask him, and he will provide hours of tales as proof. So, naturally, when another thief boasts of a plan to rob the temple of Kai the Formless, god of thieves, Davi decides that this honor cannot go to anyone less worthy than himself. Especially since his lover was there during the boasting, and he was not going to be outdone in front of her, no matter how great the risk. (M/M, M/F, M/Other)
- Haven’s Fall by Elizabeth A. Schechter
Still reeling from his final encounter with the Elders, Matthias finally reaches the promised safety of Haven. There, he is met with suspicion and accusations, learning too late that the new world he’s entered is built on as many illusions and lies as the world he’s left behind, and that the safe home he’s been searching for isn’t safe after all. When all the illusions come crashing down, and Matthias barely escapes with his life and his friends, he finds himself going back to the start — and finds himself one step closer to the truth.(M/M, M/F)
- Her Captive by Elizabeth A. Schechter
When First Mate Daniel Walker is captured by pirates, things don’t go as expected. He expected interrogation, torture, and possibly being made to walk the plank. He didn’t expect to be tied up, alone in the captain’s chambers, awaiting her pleasure. (M/F)
- Infernal Machine by Elizabeth A. Schechter
Student-Artificer Elijah Saloman discovers what he thinks could be a lost masterwork of the greatest Artificer ever born. He is determined to make it work, even though he has no idea what it is or what it is supposed to do. But when everything that can go wrong does, Elijah finds himself caught in an interesting predicament—trapped within the machine, and at the mercy of the whimsical plaything of a long-dead Artificer with a taste for the exotic.
- To Market by Elizabeth A. Schechter
Do not seek the Goblin Market. Do not barter with those you find there. And above all, do not taste of the goblin’s seed… To save his childhood sweetheart, Conn dares the dangers of the Goblin Market only to fall under the spell of the goblin himself. Will love save everything or destroy all their lives? (M/M)
- Where Home Lies by Elizabeth A. Schechter
Once an exile, Matthias returns to lead his home Enclave and settles into a new life with his beloved Solomon. Struggling with his new role and responsibilities toward the new town of Sanctuary and the people who had once rejected him, he knows that the relative peace he’s found is temporary—the forces that destroyed Haven are still out there, and he knows that they’ll come looking for him. Until they do, there are alliances to make, mouths to feed, and people who look to him to protect them. Then tragedy strikes, sending Matthias, Solomon and Tam out once more, seeking answers in the forbidden north; answers that may lead to new beginnings, or to the end of everything they’ve ever known.
Series including works by Elizabeth A. Schechter
- Rebel Mage
Erotic stories set in the world of Elizabeth A. Schechter's Rebel Mage series.
According to legend, the Others descended upon the human world a thousand years ago, erasing human science and civilization in a flood of fire and magic. After the Others retreated to the mountains, the Elders gathered the survivors together into Enclaves, uniting humanity with their magic and the strict religious rule of the Codex.
Of course, not everyone fell into line. Some defied the Enclaves, to live as rebels and bandits in the wilderness. Within the Enclaves, those who resisted the sacred authority of the Elders were sent away to the School, and never heard from again.
Matthias was sent to the School, but he did not quietly disappear. He came out of the School with magic and secrets the Elders feared, and his efforts to live free with the man he loves will shake the foundations of their world.
Anthologies including works by Elizabeth A. Schechter
- Bi Magic
Edited by D.M. Atkins, Rylan Hunter and Lon Sarver
Bi Magic collects nine of ForbiddenFiction's most popular tales of magic, mystery, romance, and of course, steaming hot sex. These high fantasy romps prove that whether you're a man, a woman, a shapeshifter, a fairy, or a trickster god from a forgotten pantheon, you really can have it both ways.
- Divine Desire
Edited by Lon Sarver and James L. Wolf
There’s a reason people often cry, “Oh, God,” in the throes of passion.
God is the only concept big enough to hold all the pleasure they’re feeling; pleasure that is as close to beatific grace as any mortal comes. This collection explores the connection between sex and divinity, the mix of temporal and transcendent passions. These ten stories of erotic encounters with the divine invite the reader to witness mortals who crave an immortal touch, deities whose anger with one another is matched only by their lust for one another, and the fate of those tempted by gods of the grave.
Rise beyond the limits of mere mortality, and partake of Divine Desire.

- Wicked Fairy Tales
Edited by D.M. Atkins, Rylan Hunter and Lon Sarver
Just what kind of happy goes into “happily ever after?” As children, it was enough that Pinocchio got to be a real boy and that Red wasn’t eaten by the wolf. As adults, we have a slightly different perspective. Being a real boy means having boy parts, and being eaten by someone big and bad doesn’t mean quite the same thing it once did.
Ever wonder what mermaids do with the swimmers they seduce? Or why a dragon might prefer a castle-guarded princess to a nice, easy field of sheep? What if your fairy godmother wasn’t circumspect in what wishes could be granted, or if that dainty little fairy had a much bigger appetite than one might guess?
